How the Institutional Racism of Yesterday Still Reverberates Today
Day One - SXSW 2010
Total Number of Bands Seen:
Six. Those Darlins, Toro y Moi, Okkervil River & Roky Erickson, Vadoinmessico, Rose Elinor Dougall, and High on Fire.
Total Number of Tacos Consumed:
Three. Including an unfortunately named "Dirty Sanchez" taco from Torchy's. I felt ashamed ordering it.
Notable Shows That I Was Unable to See:
Plenty. I couldn't get into Broken Bells, Billy Bragg, or Hunx and His Punx. Plus, due to some scheduling confusion, I missed both jj and Best Coast.
Overall Drunkeness (on an Aaron Meshian scale of 0-100)
71 (OMG, the same score as Remember Me). Too drunk too drive, yet not drunk enough to eat an unnecessary slice of pizza on the walk back to the hotel room.
